  Sherman: Part of a College Town
  With more than 10,000 students matriculating in Spartanburg County each year, it’s plain to see that Spartanburg, SC, truly is a “college town.” That’s why leaders of all six local colleges have been working together to offer joint social and academic programs to enhance the quality of the college experience for students and faculty while showcasing the importance of the institutions to the community. The next project for this consortium of colleges: College Fest 2003, a Saturday afternoon “welcome back” concert for Spartanburg students.

College Fest will be held October 25 from 6-10 p.m. (gates open at 5:30) at Barnet Park in Spartanburg. Featured bands include Dezeray’s Hammer, Seven and Five & Dime. Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 at the gate (bring your college I.D.; faculty and staff are welcome).

Free pizza, BBQ sandwiches, carnival food and soft drinks will be served, and free rock climbing, temporary tattoos and balloons will also be available. For more information or to purchase your ticket, call Student Services at 864-578-8770, ext. 1224, or e-mail sflowers@sherman.edu.
